What Happens If You Can No Longer Pay Any Debts

2010-07-21   minute read

 Generally speaking, pensions are exempt from seizure by creditors. Creditors can put a lien on your home, but only if you own your home. You indicate in your question that you are in good standing with your mortgage, which suggests that you do own your home. If you stop paying your mortgage, the mortgagee can start proceedings to sell the property. If you stop paying your other creditors, they will likely first start calling themselves or will turn the matter over to a collection agency. They may then try to get a judgment which can be used to seize your bank account or register a lien against your home (again only if you own it). If you require any additional information or would like to discuss your options, please contact the MNP office located closest to you.
